RedPrairie, a consumer driven optimization company, has announced the creation of a next generation employee self-service application. This new browser-independent application will allow employers to more effectively communicate with their employees.
As part of the RedPrairie Workforce Management solution, the enhanced employee self-service capability provides employees with the ability to confirm their work schedules, check hours worked, submit time off requests, and receive other job-related information with a secure, easy-to-use web portal interface. With this solution, employees can also access work schedules through a WAP-enabled device, such as a mobile phone or PDA.
The efficiencies extend beyond manager/employee communications. When a manager approves a request for time off, the employee is notified and the integrated workforce management application does not schedule the employee for that time. Moreover, a growing percentage of the available labor pool is using WAP-enabled devices as a popular method of communication. By enabling employees to access schedule information via a mobile phone, RedPrairie helps to redefine ‘self-service’ in the industry.
